What a sight to be on an island(or two)and gaze up at the night sky absolutely littered with a myriad of bright stars in constellations exclusive to the southern hemisphere!! Nearby islands are black silhouettes and the gentle waves lap within 10 meters of my basic bungalow/ Spent two nights on Kanawa Island and three on Soriya Island. The concept was R & R---rest and relaxation with a healthy dose of two to three hours of snorkelling. On Kanawa swam with a few baby 3 foot reef sharks, a small turtle, a large parrot fish and an amazing looking pulsating orange and purple jellyfish with foot long orange tentacles. DON'T TOUCH!! On Soriya swim with barracuda, a baby lionfish(watch out for its poisonous spines), trumpet fish, porcupine fish and many more to numerous to mention. Then back to Labuanbajo to book my flight back to Denpasar.
